"The Golden Rule"
Do for others what you want them to do for you.
Tacoma Public School is a “Kids Matter” school which has been an integral part of the local community for well over one hundred years. It is a dynamic well-resourced school located above the banks of the Wyong River.
At Tacoma Public School teachers, parents and children strive for the pursuit of excellence in a safe, caring and friendly environment. We work cooperatively to enable children to thrive in a quality learning environment that develops respect, understanding and responsibility.
The school has seven classrooms and a library, all with interactive boards and mobile technology utilising a school wide integrated wireless network. A school hall allows students to showcase their creative talents. At present there are 166 students enrolled, with Kindergarten numbers increasing each year. The school has experienced, dedicated, caring teachers who provide high quality excellent education programs in well managed learning spaces. We are fortunate to have two trained Reading Recovery teachers who assist student with difficulties in literacy. Ongoing professional development of staff ensures application of current best practice.
Strong student welfare structures and the alignment of resources to school priority areas ensure that students perform to their potential. Student health and wellbeing are promoted through our “Good Start Breakfast Club” and “Active After School” sport program. Our teachers make accommodations and adjustments for students with special needs and our students support each other in their daily work at school. Tacoma Public School promotes the knowledge and values that students need to lead productive and rewarding lives.
An active P & C supports the school in many ways and provides an avenue for parents, staff and community members to have input into school policy and decision making. Tacoma Public School is a proud member of the Wadalba Learning Community.
